Ultimate Jazz Blues Bass Walking Lesson

If you don't know how to play a simple 12 Bar blues then make sure you learn that.

It's really fun, plus it's an easy door into the wonderful world of improvisation.

A Jazz Blues (or is it Blues Jazz?) ramps things up, adding more chords and more opportunity to improvise.

Walking bass lines are an art onto themselves and fantastic for many parts of your bass playing.

This lesson will show you all you need to know to get started.

If you watched the lesson and don't really know what triads, arpeggios, modes, swing 1/8ths or anything like that, then I have plenty of lessons that teach that plus a course that will introduce you to the very basics.
